The author-photographer team that brought us The New Eighteenth-Century Style and The New French Décor has returned with 29 all-new homes, decorated in the modernized, eclectic version of Pompadour décor that has become so popular in this young century. The resulting blend of ostentatious luxury and repurposed treasures, the natural and the manufactured, is a warm, lived-in style that perfectly embodies the comforts of home. Gilles Trillard's delightful photographs reveal interiors of breezy elegance, where Pop Art and industrial design mingle with patinaed highboys and carved candelabra; texts by Michèle Lalande highlight the playful, surprising details that personalize these spaces. A perfect companion to the two previous volumes, The New Eighteenth-Century Home proves that the old has been made new once more--and it's here to stay.
